    UPDATED 01-20-2010!

    So since everyone's making their own build thread, I thought I would make one for myself too. To keep track of the stuff I buy and put into the EM1. So far, only minor things have changed since I had the car. But will progress over some time in the future.

    I will update new stuff on the first page as well as on the whatever post as the pages go on.
    This will be in chronological order.

    Page 4 - EP3 grill badge.
    Page 5 - OEM '98 optional rear lip.
    Page 7 - OEM JDM power folding mirrors.
    Page 10 - OEM Acura EL center shifter console (NO PICS).
    Page 11 - Yellow Lamin-x; Benen tripod front bar; purple Blox LCAs.
    Page 12 - OEM Honda Access window visors; OEM headlights.
    Page 13 - Purple Blox LCAs (PICS). Updated pics with Lamin-X, headlights, and window visors. Updated pics of Acura EL center console.
    Page 14 - OEM CTR Recaro SRD.
    Page 16 - ASR subframe brace and 24 mm. swaybar and purple Beaks tie bar.
    Page 17 - Random pictures, suspension pictures.
    Page 20 - NRG carbon fiber spark plug wire cover; OEM Honda battery tie down; OEM Honda Civic Si hood bra.
    Page 21 - OEM Si center caps; OEM Honda dual din block off plate.
    Page 22 - PasswordJDM carbon fiber powerchamber intake A.K.A whale penis/whale d**k.
    Page 24 - Wink mirror.

    10-08-2008. Two days after having the car. Snapped a quick picture while it slept in the garage.

    Thanks man. It's just a semi-built B20Vtec. Not much. As for plans, probably get some HOP visors, Spoon or CTR mirrors(knockoff, lol), more suspension goodies(LCAs, ASR brace, maybe a beefier swaybar, Beaks tie bar). Stuff like that.

    B20VTEC...nice. Yeah sounds like you get a decent power platform. Suspension is always a plus. I love the way my car handles and this is without a sway bar. I can't imagine with a 22mm.

    Keep it up!

    Yeah, I was planning on boosting, but I've heard that B20 bottom ends can't handle boost very well because of the thin cylinder walls so I don't know. As for now, just minor stuff. I'm a broke college student. Books have officially milked out most of my moola. :(

    Thanks man. The Function & Forms are pretty stiff. But I like them. I just hate going over dips cause sometimes I have to.

    I know. Books are ridiculous. Thanks a lot man!

    Yehp, it is indeed a college student project build.

    It would, wouldn't it? They had some at jdmgoodie.com for like $113 with free shipping last month, I should bought a set. Now I gotta pay shipping cause the promotion is over. :( Thanks bro.

    Adjusted the coils lower in the rear. Don't have any pics. Looks much better IMO.

    You down in NYC? But winters in the northeast FTL. Washed the wifes car yesterday, drove it today to the grocery store and back, and its dirty as f**k agian. :lol:

    I like the polished slips better than the mesh's.

    Yessir, I'm in NYC. Yeah, the winters suck ass here... I wash my car, the next thing you know, there's another snow storm heading towards us. As for the Slips, I don't know. I wasn't really feeling them. BUT, I do plan on going 5-lug. :D

    Very true. It's hard to find one that isn't molested. I haven't seen another EM1 around my area.
    Will get pics up soon.
